  1. With a small lathe, one could use a small clear dress button to start with. Bonzi Lon
  2. It was my understanding from years ago that the blue on blue WAS the rarest color combo. Yes, I did get paid from a Saudi Sheik, in Benjamins. Bonzi Lon
  3. I just checked my 68 Roadster and found out it has the "GARAGE" stamped on the ignition switch, except it is between the "ACC" and the "ON" position. The key is located on the left side of the steering wheel. Bonzi Lon
  4. Just a reminder, you don't want it sitting too high, because the positive battery post needs to slide under the inspection lid and the support metal under the lid. There is not much room for that to happen. Bonzi Lon
  5. Just went out and measured my 73. The way you have it sitting it needs to be 7 7/8" off the frame rail, close as I could get. The distance from the firewall is 7/8" measured at the front on the flat part, and also 7/8" measured on the square bump out, it appears the tray is at a slight angle for that to happen. Maybe CanTechZ can/should verify my measurements. Hope this helps. Bonzi Lon
  6. Here is one I found in the Wichita craigslist. I do not own it, nor do I know who owns it. https://wichita.craigslist.org/cto/d/wichita-1971-datsun-240z/7294757451.html Bonzi Lon
  7. You're in luck. I got a new one with a car and lots of parts back in 05. Put it in the parts bin and forgot about it until your wanted post. I think is it a repo and not OEM, as it does not have as much backing as the one Terrapin Z posted above. However it is new, no glue stains, diamond pattern, and Black. I had no use for it as my car has the beautiful off white interior. :) Bonzi Lon
  8. Sorry Keith, I sold the car back in 2010 and don't have any pics of the seats other than what is posted above. Bonzi Lon
  9. An inverted pendulum is a metronome (sp), if that helps. ? Bonzi Lon
  10. Hello Pmg:   I saw in your post in the Roadster thread that you were interested in one.  Well, i have a 68 that I bought 11 years ago and have been unable to work on it since being injured at work in 09, so it is in the same shape I got it.  It has been in a dry garage all this time.  Here is a post of it when I got it.  It has a few more miles since posting as I drove it around for several months.  Here is the thread about it.  

    If you would like to talk about it on the phone, please call me at 620-491-1131.  Let me know what you think.  Thank you for your time.

      Hi Lonny, thanks for reaching out regarding the roadster. I've to realize that these can be very fun cars. The one you have has great potential and can see why you picked it up. I am however, in a similar position where time is not something I have a lot of therefore I am looking for a more completed project. Being located in the midwest really is a downer when it comes to finding roadsters. I hope you will have some time in the near future to finish your roadster as she looks quite nice. Thank you again and see you around the forum!



  11. Here us what I think. The posts have a metal barrel clip to hold it in the hole. The emblem on the deck is fully plastic. When I refurbished all my emblems, some of the barrel clips stayed on the post, the other posts broke off. All of the emblems on my car were plastic except the round side quarter emblems. They are made of a 'pot' type metal that a magnet will not stick to. It is also subject to corrosion faster than other metals, the ones on my 73 were very rough and pitted. The steel in the barrel clips will attract a magnet. There is probably rust holding the barrel clips on the posts like they were on mine. Hope this helps. Bonzi Lon
  12. HLS30-00110 with a build date of 12-69 was a blue on blue but I did not put it on the Z register, thought the new owner might want do it. Bonzi Lon
  13. When I refurbished my car replacement lines were 240mm for the rear and 220mm for the fronts. Bonzi Lon
  14. The above b&w photo is another interesting find. I have an arcade card, ( same size as a postcard with no printing on the back) of the very same photo of the above Z. However, at the bottom my has the following printing. "Datsun 240-Z Printed in USA Courtesy of Parker Advertising, Inc., Jason Hailey Photography." Bonzi Lon
